Inveterate dabbler in business, travel, gadgets & life

Following river courses to and from their sources!

Now the business & office is sold. The big house move is behind me
and my other house is renovated and let out it’s time to start
travelling!

Next week, after our weekend in The Cotswolds,  I’m rambling all 184 miles of The Thames Path from its source near Kemble to the Thames barrier, Sally will join me when she can.

In July I hope to cycle my bike back from Les Gets via the source of the Rhine in Reichenau, Switzerland to where it meets the North sea about 800miles!.

Then in October and November I hope to visit the source of The Yangtze  where it originates in a glacier lying on the west of Geladandong Mountain in the Dangla Mountain Range on the eastern part of the Tibetan plateau  although I don’t think I can cycle or walk its entire 3,915 miles!

Afterwards  after travelling by train overland to India. I intend to do the holy trail upto where The Ganges rises at the foot of Gangotri Glacier, at Gaumukh, at an elevation of 3,892 m (12,769 ft) Cathy thinks I should don all the traditional gear of the  Sannyasisi, since I’m over 50 vegetarian and bald 🙂

Should all be very interesting to see the major rivers of their respective countries, lets hope my stomach can take the strain.
